Commentary: Where’s the ACLU? I thought they were in the business of fighting to protect the civil liberties and constitutional rights of minorities. Well, in San Francisco we have a gentleman who is being persecuted by local government no less for simply exercising his First Amendment right. According to census statistics and a recent New York Times article, which all you ACLU people accept as gospel, this man is clearly now a minority and is being persecuted by “THE MAN”. Since when is it ok for a government entity to persecute a single citizen who has done nothing wrong. How come Sharpton and Jackson aren’t standing on the steps of city hall demanding an apology from Gerardo Sandoval for his malicious deeds upon a minority? Where’s the outrage? I demand that the ACLU send their first available Red Diaper Doper Baby Attorney to San Francisco post haste. They have work to do.
Savage attacked by officials pushing immigrant bailout
San Francisco leaders want taxpayers to pay for green cards, citizenship

San Francisco city officials are trying to force taxpayers to pay for immigrants’ green cards and citizenship – and to bolster their case for the new tax, they’ve introduced a resolution condemning national radio talk-show host Michael Savage for what they call his “defamatory language … against immigrants.”
Supervisor Chris Daly, reacting to the new and significantly higher federal fee structure for immigrants seeking citizenship, imposed last week by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, complained that the fee hikes raise concerns that immigrants “cannot obtain safe pathways to legal immigrant status and citizenship” and “further exacerbates pressures on families, increasing stress,” according to the San Francisco Examiner.
Under the new fee structure, the cost to apply for a green card is now $930, up $605 from the old fee. Citizenship applications went from $330 to $595. On Tuesday, Daly asked the city attorney to draw up legislation that would subsidize immigrants applying for citizenship, green cards and petitions for relatives and workers.
On the same day, apparently to further generate sympathy for immigrants and bolster Daly’s bailout effort, Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval introduced a resolution condemning popular radio talk-show host Michael Savage, a mainstay of the San Francisco airways for years. Since he was syndicated nationally by Talk Radio Network, Savage has become one of the nation’s most-listened-to radio talkers.
